Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If there has been any display of hate, contempt or other such base feelings between the two countries, it certainly did not come from France.

If you mean to say there is no silly and/or hostile stereotyping of America and Americans in France, now or in the past, you don't really know your own country. Perhaps because as someone who is not American you are both less exposed to such stupidity, and less able to recognize it when you do hear it.

it's just not official policy, never has been, unlike anti-French policies in the US.

A friend, pretty senior in the Pentagon establishment, told me that people were actually deleting that they spoke French from their resumes  in 2003, because it would kill their prospects then.
